We've featured a lot of Assassin's Creed 2 deals over the last few months- and quite rightly too. The recent complete and Game of the Year editions provide excellent value for money by including the DLC chapters... but thanks to an impressive preorder deal on the upcoming Platinum GOTY version, PS3 owners will be able to experience the unabridged Assassin's Creed experience for an extremely low price.
A suspiciously low price, even. HMV are currently providing a preorder price of £9.99, which is an £8 saving compared to the next best offering from Amazon. Still, the preorder can be added to the basket and their price promise should bind them to the agreement. Let us know how you get on!
You're probably sick to death of Assassin's Creed 2 commentary by now, but my full review will fill you in on most of the details. Stepping into the shoes of the flamboyant Ezio Auditore de Firenze, you'll scamper across Renaissance rooftops and deliver a bewildering variety of death to your stereotypical enemies. A raft of tweaks, improvements and genuine innovations elevate Assassin's Creed 2 far above its predecessor and into genuine gaming greatness.
Apart from a few little control niggles (which will occasionally send Ezio merrily leaping to certain death despite your best efforts) and a truly casual difficulty curve, Assassin's Creed 2 stacks up with the best open world sandboxes out there. The two DLC chapters add even more bang for your buck- and for less than a tenner, this has to be worth a punt if you haven't already enjoyed Renaissance Italy's deadly delights.
